This Sunday we will present the medallions for those who recently completed the AUDAX 600km ride last weekend. The event will be held at Boomarang @ Robertson Quay from 3pm-6pm. Come and have a drink and a bite to eat to share stories about the ride. In addition to the 600km medals, we will also have the medallions from the shorter distances for those who have ordered them and paid for them. Medallions are S$25 each.
With the completion of the 600 there were 16 Singapore AUDAX riders who achieved Super Randonneur Status for the 2014-15 season. This honorific is given to riders who complete 200, 300, 400 and 600 kilometer brevets in a season. To check your status visit SR Status That number in itself is amazing….more than ever for Singapore. IN addition, it is so amazing to see a number of guys achieving this who until around four months ago had not ridden more than 200km in one crack! #philippou#brooks KUDOS to all the ladies and gents who have finished SR.
There are plenty of riders who are one small ride away from achieving SR status. The next ride is May 9th where we will have a 300, 400 and 600km option for those who are missing a particular ride. Longer rides can be substituted for shorter requirements – for instance, if you do a 300km and you are missing a 200km distance, then you are fine. There are lots of riders already signed up for all distances including the 600km. What we are doing is the standard Patrick Williams 300km route in Malaysia and finishing all distances in Singapore given logistical and other challenges.
Once again Boomarang has closed off a room for us and that is pretty amazing given that it is a Sunday afternoon during a busy weekend. To top it all off they are giving us 25 beers to start the event off with a bang. Thanks Boomarang for your continued support for our events!
